cooperation. and here is the president now with charles schumer, the senior senator of new york. >> mr. schumer i believe is in charge of the congressional committee that puts the inauguration on. he'll be speaking before the president takes the oath this morning. of course, there will be no lack of conversation on this trip to the capitol. of course you'll have the vice president there. he can always be counted on to -- if there's a gap in the conversation, he'll fill it. >> it will be something to see whether between the vice president and senator schumer the president can get a word in edgewise on this short trip up. it's about 1.6 miles. i'm reminded that abraham lincoln once said about this trip, he said i have always been told that i'm going to hell, but i didn't realize it was two miles up the road with a dome on top of it. i'm sure all presidents feel that way from time to time. the president's armored limousine now moving past the entrance to the west wing and will soon be on its way out of the white house grounds and up pennsylvania avenue. senator schumer who is riding with
was honored to work with that group, along with senator pryor and senator schumer, with senator barrasso, senator alexander and our former colleague, senator kyl, and we sat for hours debating. it was very educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that you could be in your home state and offer an objection, a bill could be brought to a standstill. that's n
beyonÉe listening thing. senator chuck schumer who hosted and organized most of the festivities that he has yet to receive a call from the on-site apologizing for her performance. does he really expect her to call? i don't know why he expects an apology. >> who cares? is a difficult song to the best of times and maybe she wasn't in the best that day. and then the marine band -- do they actually play? melissa: they kind of blamed her and said she said we are not doing a live performance. >> i'm so glad that senator schumer has obviously the most important thing on his mind. forget about the 16 filion dollars in debt. melissa: as a politician he's really worried about people being phony. so that makes a lot of sense as well. next up, take a look at this fantastic resume. we know how hard it is to try and stand up, but have you ever seen anything as creative as this? he says there is only one lasting stock, you have to get it now. i think it's cute. >> this is the first time we have heard about this. melissa: our staff was very much mocking him and saying what a dork he is. they really hun

[inaudible] >> anything we do will be based on a budget. we do think separate and apart from now, but the framework for moving forward is the budget senator murray has indicated she will move forward with. >> can you be more specific -- [inaudible] >> senator durbin correctly said it's always been republican mantra. close the loopholes and use this mayonnaise. rethink some of those should be used for revenues. so did simpson/bowles. as the discussions have been about. we haven't changed our position and i hope they have a change to various. that will be up to the budget committee and the finance committee will discuss that. i [inaudible] >> say that again. senator murray, we talked about that on t

for them. for chuck schumer to say they were going to pass a budget anyway tells you the strategy might be working. however your question is very valid. because i have a same concerns. you know, they have caved every single time in the last two years. and i have made it very explicit to them that i'm with them on the issue because i believe there's -- i believe there's statements they're not going to cave again. but that day cave again they're going to have some problems in the house. it they going to have -- because there's a large number of members of the house of representatives and house members dissatisfied with what is hooping. and they're believing that the leadership is changing what they, you know, the strategy changing their negotiation tactic. i'm optimistic. like i said before, i think they have to prove themselves. leadership comes not from the demanding leadership it comes from having the people you're leading trust you. that's the only way you can follow is if you have trust in your leadership. i don't have that trust 100%. what i also -- i believe enough that they want t
